Jedi Prepares for her Trials


Recommended Posts

So my last challenge was ON POINT. Like legit. I'm so proud of myself :) So I'm going to do a very similar challenge for this one.

 

I'm also going to do some light theming because I miss my Star Wars challenges. The December and January challenges are going to be, well, challenging. So I'm going to make the most of that and do a two part Trial 

 

I will say that this last month is going to be quite busy. As of right now, I have one 5-7 pg paper, one 15 page paper, a presentation, a ton of readings, a journal, a workout plan, and a massive art project to do this month. Plus I have Thanksgiving break with my family, lots of ridiculous weekend things, pre-marital counseling, wedding planning, and hopefully this little thing called free time. And also I'm writing a lesson plan for my mom to teach her precious little gifted kids how to write a website that I'm hoping to finish by Christmas break so that I can teach it to my mom first. And also I work 15 hours a week because I'm broke.

 

So I have to make time to do my workout stuff as well ._. 

 

Alright, here are my goals.

 

Goal 1- Gaining Rey's Endurance- Run on treadmill 2x/week

 

I'm going to do my running stuff this month much better than I did last month. I had a lot of bad situations where I couldn't run more than once a week (stupid floods, stupid football games). But this month I shouldn't have much of that stuff. If I can get to bed at a reasonable hour the nights before, this won't be a problem really. I just need to actually do it. Wednesdays are really hard days to convince myself to wake up early and go run. I need to get better at it. 

 

A- 2x/week for 4 weeks

+2 DEX +2 STA

B- 2x/week for 3 weeks

+1 DEX +1 STA

C - 2x/week for 2 weeks

+.5 DEX +.5 STA

Less is Fail

Goal 2- Gaining the Flexibility of a Jedi

 

I LOVE being flexible now. Love it. So I'm gonna keep pushing it! I'm doing so well now that I'm stretching daily :)

 

Stretch 6x/week for 4 weeks - A

+2 DEX +2 CHA

Stretch 6x/week for 3 weeks - B

+1 DEX +1 CHA

Stretch 6x/week for 2 weeks - C

+.5 DEX +.5 CHA

Less is fail

Goal 3- Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering

 

I'm going to keep tracking my food in my journal. This has traditionally been the best method for me since I like to cook my own food and calorie counting stuff makes that a pain. Also things like MFP don't take my strength training into account, of which I've done much recently (GAINZ GUYZ). I've been eating rather well recently overall, I'm really proud of myself ^_^ So I'm going to keep that up this month. 

 

Track for 28 days

+2 CON +2 CHA

Else fail

BONUS GOAL- Learn the smoothness and fluidity of movement possessed by a Jedi

 

I'm going to try a bonus goal. I should do a yoga video once a week. Maybe on Friday nights or something, I'm not sure. But the yoga video can be as chill or not chill as I'd like, but it needs to be ~ 15 minutes long. 

 

4 yoga videos -A

+2 DEX

3 yoga videos -B

+1 DEX

2 yoga videos -C

+.5 DEX

Less is Fail

Following my fellow Jedi, of course!

 

I hear ya on the MFP not tracking strength stuff well...  it's an investment, but I have found that Polar heart rate monitors (chest strap kind) really track my weight lifting better than anything else.     And the difference between it, and what MFP thinks?  Anywhere from 150-250 calories!

 

Glad your last challenge was so awesome!    Time to rack up another successful trial eh Jedi?

I'm mostly doing bodyweight stuff, but entering in all of that stuff is a major pain. I'm mostly just learning what I can('t) eat by trial and error. And how much. I'm getting a lot better since I used to not eat quite enough and then I'd go food crazy at night. Now I'm better about not doing that. MFP is just not really conducive to my lifestyle. I like cooking, but the amount of time it takes to enter EVERY SINGLE INGREDIENT is insane. And as a student with limited time? lol nope. Plus, I don't always measure things completely. Like, I know I need some salt. But how much is some? It depends on the dish. 

 

And That's the plan!

My Fitness Pal is so hard >____<,,, so I feel ya. Maybe I should try food journaling again...

WHOOOOOOO ALL the good things!!

 

It really is. I had good results on it, but it's just not sustainable. Food journaling for me is a nice balance between tracking every little thing and then undereating and tracking nothing and overeating.

Ugh. I do not wanna do measurements tomorrow. It's gonna look horrible with this horrible monthly girl curse b/c bloating and also I've been eating a little more (especially carbs oops) though not as bad as usual so small steps I guess.

 

I'm really glad I kept all of the measurements from when I did measurements once every like three months or so. I have lost like 4 inches in most places over the past year and a half or so. It's really encouraging in times like this.

 

Like I've said before. My dress fits. It's just a matter of not making it too small. I'd love to make it look nicer but as long as I don't gain a bunch of weight I'll be alright.

Day 1 Measurements 

Shoulders- 15.25 in

Chest- 32 in

Bicep- 9.5 in

Waist- 29.5 in

Hips- 40.5 in

Thigh- 18.75 in
Weight- 162 lbs

 

 

Okay, not terrible. The weight one doesn't surprise me b/c bloating ugh. And I'm not bothered by it- it doesn't tell me what my actual size is. 

 

The red ones are ones I'd like to work on most. Italics are the ones that went up.

 

Most of them did go up a little bit this week, but again, the hips measurement was highly affected by bloating. The waist measurement surprised me because that's around my belly button. I'm surprised that stayed where it did, but am pleased. Thighs are a toss up. Some of that could be muscle, I'm not even sure anymore. Bicep doesn't bother me going up because I think after a while that ends up being muscle, which I can definitely feel.

 

So that's the day one measurements. Thanks to an AM drs appt tomorrow, I'm running today instead. I'll make sure I get my stretching in afterwards, and I've also got some domestic rangering and homework-y sorts of things to do. Plus I'm cooking tonight. Though tbh this week cooking means I'm making taco ground beef and warming up my canned refried beans. But either way, I'm ready. There's lots of yummy not bad for me food that will be made.

Yesterday was about what I planned. Today, and the rest of the week, is and will be better.

 

I'm pretty happy with things thus far. I'm ready to get going!

Woop woop! Yeah, holidays are always bad - better to plan ahead and expect it. Here's to an amazing rest of the week! ^_^ 

The funniest part about all of this is the fact that it wasn't about the holiday. I got my medicine changed yesterday so I went from the arm implant thingie for my cramps and lady issues, to now a hole in my arm where the implant was and an implant elsewhere. In more unpleasant places. So I was cramping and gross all day and I've been saving my only trip to my favorite restaurant on grounds (the one I used to eat at like once a week when I wasn't caring about my healthy foods) for a special occasion. That was my special occasion. I also may have gotten a treat or two after my lunch. whoops.

 

But no more this week. No more. I shall eat well for the rest of the week, whilst taking my trip home this weekend into account.

FRIENDS. REBELS. FELLOW RANGERS.

 

I need your help.

 

So I'm having a problem where I'm gaining muscle but I'm not eating nearly enough! I need some suggestions on how to add more healthiness to my meals.

 

Example Day

Breakfast- yoghurt (the lite and fit greek kind), blueberries, granola

Lunch - Sandwich (sandwich round, laughing cow cheese, slice of lunch meat, slice of provalone), fruit (apple, banana, grapes, etc), and some goldfish crackers/chips

Snack- A protein heavy granola bar

Dinner- something I've prepared. This week it was tacos. Last week it was chicken tortellini alfredo with broccoli.

 

So I need some ways to get more foods, especially more protienz in! I have considered going back to Chobani yoghurt for breakfast (they're a little waterier than the ones I eat but I don't mind them). But I'm not sure what/where else I could add foods. Please give any suggestion you can for where and what I can eat more!

It looks pretty good to me. If you're gaining muscle you're likely getting enough protein, although more may allow even more gains. Maybe more meat on your sandwich/ in your dinner. Maybe swap out the goldfish crackers for nuts.

Your meals look much like mine hehe.    And a while ago (couple years) I wasn't tracking my calories and ended up eating far far too little in my quest for health.      I do eggs and bacon for breakfast, mostly because I've learned that anything carby or sweet doesn't do it for me.   Lunches - you could always add another slice or two of the lunch meat to the sandwich.   Beyond that, I'm not sure.    I too have struggled with the 'want more protein' but not hundreds more calories issue. ;)

It's more that I need to eat more but I don't wanna overeat (like I have been) and don't know how to get more food in my meals without going back to gaining weight/fat.

Yeah this is a constant problem for me- figuring out how much to eat. I eat more during a semester because I'm walking around all the time but I don't need as much when I'm working, especially when I wasn't working out regularly (which I'm going to try not to let happen again).  I love my yoghurt and granola because it's super high protein (I use high protein granola) but I really probably need to start eating the chobani again -_- the other stuff is yummier but Chobani has an extra 50 calories that have helped keep me fed. I could add sausage links or something to give it a savory aspect though?

 

I could also trade out my goldfish crackers for a trail mix that doesn't have chocolate in it haha

It may help to lower carbs a little bit and add more protien and fat. Fat helps me to lower cravings! I've also realized a low-carb diet works best for me...I would say keep doing what works, tweak a thing or two and really figure out what works best for you because everyone's body is different! Keep up the awesome work!

Glad you're feeling better! Everyone else's food suggestions seem pretty good to me. Add protein where you can, and swapping out for some more protein/calorie dense snacks and you should be good to go! Also, if you're just needing a little extra calories, adding extra fats to things is a good way to go too.

It may help to lower carbs a little bit and add more protien and fat. Fat helps me to lower cravings! I've also realized a low-carb diet works best for me...I would say keep doing what works, tweak a thing or two and really figure out what works best for you because everyone's body is different! Keep up the awesome work!

Thanks! That's about what I'm going to be trying. Ish. I'm gonna start adding more protein and fat first because I struggle with cutting carbs too far without having more food to compensate. I usually turn into a raging bear.

Thanks! Yeah basically what I'm doing is adding calories in small places. Like I bought the yoghurt with like 30-50 more calories, but is still good on sugar/protein/fat ect. I also bought nuts to eat when I'm hungry, as well as hummus. I got "real" bread instead of sandwich thins because that's a way to get like 30 more calories and also the bread I got has nice fiber counts. So stuff like that :) Also V8 juice. Has fruits and veggies in it, not bad on sugar, and delish.

 

So I had a fantastic weekend! I went home and saw my Fiance :) We hung out with a bunch of his dudes and I TRIED DEER NUGGETS AND OMG DELISH <3 I think I surprised all the boys except Navarone with the volume of those things I eat. Apparently now I look small enough that I don't look like I can eat as much as I can??? I find that a success of its own. Weekend wasn't fantastic on food, but considering volume I kinda compensated for bad quality with less food.

 

Also I skipped my run this morning >.< I was, however, completely exhausted and definitely needed the break. Tonight I'm going to do my yoga and hopefully I'll get time to run on Saturday. Maybe I can go run and then go straight to grab the probably like 5 things I'll need for food next week. I dunno.

 

So here are my measurements. As always, bold ones are the ones that have gotten lower.

 

Shoulders- 15 in

Chest- 31.5 in

Bicep- 9.5 in

Waist- 30 in

Hips- 40.5 in

Thigh- 18.5 in
Weight- 160.4 lbs

 

Weight went down, that looks like probably a lack of the hardcore bloat/upset tummy I was dealing with last week. Not fun. Shoulders and chest are smaller, which is nice. Maybe I can try a 32 or 34 bra instead of the 36 I've been wearing! Big thing I hope will continue to shrink a little is the waist (belly) measurement. I don't mind having hips/booty, I like my hourglass shape and would prefer to keep it. But I'd like to have a little less... fluff around my middle. Just gotta keep eating better and keep building muscle I guess!

 

May the Force be with you all on this Monday!! :)

Food today was awful. Ugh. It was fine but i wasn't hungry during my last class so I didn't eat my snack then I had a major snack attack while I was making dinner and went nuts. Ugh.

 

Tomorrow will be better.

Better than Tuesday slightly, I swear my medications are partially to blame. Especially since I've been doing so well. I'm slowly doing better tho. This whole thing feels like two steps forward and then a step back. But at least I'm still making progress that way!

 

Things would be even better if I hadn't wonked up my ankle yesterday... I fell on the Bosu in class and my good ankle went odd. I didn't run this morning, and I'm babying it a bit. I'm gonna try to do class tomorrow as much as I can, but I'm not gonna push too hard. So no running this week, but I'm gonna try to do yoga on Saturday. 

 

If anyone knows a replacement to running (elliptical, biking, etc) that involves a gym machine and doesn't put a ton of pressure on my ankle I'd be really indebted to you! I will probs replace running with whatever that is for the next week or so.

On the downside, I overate again today. On the up side, there isn't really any more food left that I can go crazy with so there's that.

 

There are certain things that I'm just not going to replace at the grocery store this go round.

 

Like the Goldfish crackers. I was doing so well eating them normally and now just nope.
